The following studio potters are currently showing their work in the La Mano gallery: Alan Chao, Alex Salzberg, Betsy Day, Bob Pesce, Cayden Belzig, Dan Halm, Danny Kaplan, Dave Hollingsworth, David Moldover, Diane Waller, Helane Bronfeld, Janet Pytlik, Julie Hadley, Julie Hirschfeld, Karen Eigo, Laurie Ross, Liqiao Cai, Marge Lurie, Marvin Ross, Marysia Schultz Melissa Green, Nicole Donnelly, Nicole Rose, Peggy Clarke, Raffaela Vergata, Susan Baker, Tae Kim, Tantika Tivorat, Teo Ferrucci, Tessie Nam, and Yin Fan Huang.
This unique collection highlights a process that is rarely seen in New York City—work that has been placed directly into a large pit in the earth, covered with organic and combustible materials and then fired for several hours. With flames rising as high as 6 feet from the ground, all pieces are surrounded by the hot fire. A cover is slowly lowered over the fire, creating an atmosphere of reduced oxygen during which the organic material creates lasting impressions on the pottery.
Come spend an evening at La Mano Pottery in the company of Michael Fullwood, an expert floral designer. Michael has a unique skill of enhancing vases and vessels of any size or design with just the right combination of flowers and other greenery. He has designed many shows and large exhibitions, including floral design at The White House and in the lobby of the Metropolitan Museum.
The evening will utilize fresh, seasonal flowers and ceramic vases. You are welcome to bring your own or purchase a vase from La Mano’s gallery.
